Agree 100% with you Rob. For me it was a highly personal moment between me and and the band, regardless of what was going on around me. In the best of times it always seemed that the boys were playing just for me, in tune with my thoughts and feelings like they were in my head. This held true always except for the night in Richmond I was vomited on...that kind of made me notice the folks around me.

yeah, the folks around ye...

I was at a GD show circa 1990 at the Oakland Coliseum indoor arena, tagging along with Jesse Block the video edit man, he likes to move around, check out the scene if he's not anchored to the switch cam stuff.

Over on the left side on the balcony, the Phil rooting section was in full swing... interesting, I'd never noticed them before.

Then a friendly gal came up to me, I couldn't make out what she was saying, but I smiled, this could be the night I half-imagined.

A moment later I turned around to see where she was so I could say something or other, and she was being carried out horizontally by several of her friends, she had passed out or something...


Jesse and I walked around the outer corridor, I saw lots of people doing their own thing, drumming...
so they bring their congas to the show, and play outside the auditorium for the whole set?

OK...

Jesse stops to talk to someone, I just stand there, absently looking at the person next to that person's tie-die t-shirt.

Slowly I look up, at the person's face, making polite eye contact...

and it's my sister, whom I haven't seen in 2 years or so!
We both were just looking around and noticed each other at the same instant.
That was a good laugh!

So, I guess ya gotta notice people around you sometimes...

Wow nice interview-discussion, while I'll agree to disagree it does capture the essence of the scene as a whole in my opinion. Some very insightful perspectives for sure. Sounds like this is an old interview I wonder what if anything the the years have done to confirm or deny. I myself think it's more true than ever but where does the younger generation go to find it now or is it lost?

But wasn't it worth it for the Gloria?
